Currently on Tuesday: The Pope and the greenhouse gases

All of the non-believers of climate change have many wealthy people in the corner backing them up, hmmm that must be nice. But guess what?! For those of us folk who believe in science, we just gained quite the supporter. THE POPE! That’s right ladies and gents, Pope Francis has come out saying that climate…

Currently on Tuesday: Cruz-in’ for climate change

Tuesday is my one day a week to be opinionated on politics, and that is enough for me. I figured Ted Cruz’s uneducated opinions were going to catch up to him eventually. But, I never thought it would be in quite a dramatic way. Unless you’ve been living under a rock in the last week,…

Currently on Tuesday: Candidates on Climate Change

Today, for Currently on Tuesday we are going to talk a little politics. Truth be told, I am not really into politics. I didn’t even want to vote in the 2012 election because Obama shut down the middle of my college campus and made me late to class. Yes, I actually got stopped by the…

The Lord of the Arctic, and we aren’t talking about Santa!

Today is International Polar Bear Day! So whats the deal with these giant white bears anyway? You can call these bears: ursus maritimus, sea bear, ice bear, nanuk, white bear, Lord of the Arctic (my personal favorite), white sea deer, and many other seemingly ridiculous, yet completely real names. Besides all of their oddly given…

Oh, the Hu-manatee!!!

Ok, so my puns are not always the best, but the title of this post really made me laugh. I love manatees, I have had a strange fascination with them for a long time. It is actually one of my wildest dreams to hug one, even though it is highly illegal. Yesterday, 19 manatees were…

The pen was stronger than the pipeline

It was always of great interest to me that one man, the President, could veto the opinions of over 200 other people, Congress. That is a whole lot of power, and that power has vetoed the Keystone Pipeline. Learn more about the Keystone Pipeline and why it matters here:¬†https://brookesays.com/2015/02/10/alaska-and-gas-puns-oh-yeah-and-environmental-issues/¬†. Apparently President Obama immediately vetoed the…

Climate change is no joke…or is it?

I 100% believe that climate change is happening and that it is a serious issue. However, I did find these hilarious short clips that anyone who believes in the notion of global warming will enjoy: Steven Colbert is back at it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAuWztI1Eec Jon Stewart hits the nail on the head: http://thedailyshow.cc.com/videos/18l8gy/unusually-large-snowstorm And who doesn’t love…

Alaska and gas puns. Oh yeah, and environmental issues.

The modern human race is a species that is ravenous for natural resources. One that is hotly debated, especially recently, is the oil reserves in Alaska. President Obama has used executive order to protect much of the wilderness in Alaska that was planned for drilling. Big companies, like Shell, are up in arms about this…
